In the messages, Melissa's husband described graphic sexual acts he wanted to do with the woman. "I wanna cum on ur tits now." Now that Melissa had evidence, her husband immediately changed his tune: He didn't think he'd done anything wrong, because he'd had no physical contact with the other woman.
But for Melissa, it didn't matter whether he'd actually followed through with his graphic messages. She decided to file for divorce, a process she's still going through today. adults found that 85 percent of women and 74 percent of men consider sexting a form of cheating. Merriam-Webster defines "sexting" as "the sending of sexually explicit messages or images by cell phone." But other definitions vary, depending on whom you ask.
Melissa noticed that her husband was standing very close to one woman in particular.
She told The Huffington Post that the two of them were whispering to each other and getting "a little too handsy." Both of them had their phones out, apparently texting one another.
A person had sex with someone outside of the relationship -- that was it, case closed.
But now, with the advent of Internet porn, messaging apps and online forums, people may not always agree on what cheating actually is.
To Weiss' clients, sexting only involves the exchange of images.
"I think Anthony Weiner demonstrated this to us very well," said Weiss.
"Healthy women in intimate, committed relationships will not tend to sext," said Weiss.But something still seemed off, so the next morning, Melissa contacted the other woman and asked her about it.The woman felt guilty, so she sent Melissa screenshots of the texts.About 40 percent of respondents over age 50 had sexted with someone they met on Ashley Madison.Evidently, when it comes to infidelity, sexting isn't just a millennial thing.
